Time Change

Spring Forward

Don’t forget to turn your clocks ahead one hour at 2 a.m. on March 10 for daylight saving time (DST).

According to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) website, DST is the part of the year when we advance our clocks by one hour, shifting the time of day in relation to where the Sun is above Earth.  That means daylight begins an hour later in the morning and lasts an hour longer in the evening.

The changover back to standard time (ST) occurs on the first Sunday in November at 2 a.m. (local time).  Some people remember which way to move their clocks using the phase, “spring forward, fall back.”
